  • HumanEyes 3D review

    HumanEyes 3D is an interesting new technology that creates stereoscopic images for print or on-screen viewing. It was originally invented to allow a single digital camera to capture 360-degree panoramas for stereoscopic viewing – this hasn’t previously been possible with one camera. Technically it’s not true 3D, but ‘2.5D’ as the subjects only rotate slightly, but your eyes see a realistic continuous-depth impression.

  • Nikon D70 review

    For users of SLR cameras, going digital can have a major impact on the wallet. SLR prices jump from hundreds of pounds for a film camera to thousands for a digital model, which is why most digital SLR manufacturers have concentrated on the professional market – until recently. Nikon’s 6.1-megapixel D70 is the company’s first model designed for photographers of all stripes.

  • DVD Studio Pro 3 review

    Apple’s premier DVD-formation package is now in its third incarnation, bringing new interface elements, workflow enhancements and wider format support to Mac-based DVD authors. The basic method of constructing a DVD remains the same, but the power of the application is in the compact nature of the process.

  • SuperGraphx review

    For 2,000 years, mathematicians and scientists have been searching for a ‘super formula’, a single algorithm that can be used to describe any shape that can occur in nature. So, what did Johan Gielis do when he discovered this super formula during his botanical research? He turned it into an Illustrator plug-in, of course.

  • Iomega REV review

    There was a time when every self-respecting designer had an Iomega Jazz drive sitting on the desk. The Jazz drive’s removable hard disk cartridges were a handy and cost-effective way of backing up files or sharing them with colleagues, but they were limited to just 2GB, and were soon eclipsed by technologies that offered both higher capacity and lower prices, such as the DVD.

  • Kodak DX7630 review

    Arriving too late for our compact camera round up (see Digit 75), the DX7630 looks like nothing more than another point-&-shoot digital compact, but glance beneath the bonnet and you’ll find features designed to please those demanding more control. The question is: can Kodak’s top-of-the range compact camera compete with others in this sportier class?

  • Bubble Jet i9950 review

    Canon’s latest, greatest A3 photo inkjet printer is overall the best traditional model that we’ve ever seen. However, if you’re willing to pay a little more, this printer can be topped. The Bubble Jet i9950 is the sequel to last year’s top-rated i9100 – reviewed and given a Best Buy as part of our group test in Digit 69. The i9950 adds two more inks ...

  • Designjet 30 review

    The Designjet 30 isn’t unique like its 130 brother (reviewed previously) but that doesn’t mean it’s any less impressive. The 30 is an A3+ version of the A1 130 – offering almost all of the features that made the 130 so great, though including the same few irritating flaws.

  • PF Match 1.0 review

    The market for match-moving software is becoming increasingly crowded – and now there’s another product to add to the list. The Pixel Farm’s PFMatch joins the likes of 2d3’s Boujou, RealViz’s MatchMover, and a handful of plug-in-based solutions in the match-moving market. PFMatch aims to offer a sophisticated toolset and autotracking for the extraction of 3D camera data from film or video footage.

  • Vegas 5 review

    Vegas is the permanent underdog of the video-editing world. The NLE has a small but fanatical following in the US, but has probably slipped under the radar of most editors – although it’s a tool you’d know about if you always wanted to make music videos. It's available 'straight' or bundled with the DVD Architect 2.0 authoring package (reviewed here) as Vegas+DVD.

  • DVD Architect 2 (from Vegas+DVD 5) review

    Against rivals such as Adobe’s Encore DVD, Apple’s DVD Studio and Ulead’s DVD Workshop, DVD Architect is unusual in that it’s available only as part of Sony’s Vegas+DVD bundle (Vegas 5 is reviewed here). Looking at version 2.0, this makes perfect sense – as while its interface and integration will appeal to Vegas users, its toolset isn’t up to the competition.

  • Photosmart 945 review

    HP’s Photosmart 945 camera is difficult to pigeonhole. Over five megapixels, and an 8x optical zoom lens might put it in the class of advanced cameras like the Minolta Dimage A1 or the Fujifilm FinePix S7000, which cost a lot more. But the overall design of the Photosmart 945 seems aimed at providing point-&-shoot ease.

  • Photosmart 7762 review

    HP’s Photosmart 7762 is a decent printer that delivers when it comes to photo quality. The price isn’t bad, either, and the unit is well equipped to print photos from memory cards or directly from a digital camera. The control panel’s 1.8-inch LCD displays either photos or menu commands, and the flash-memory card slots on the front of the printer read all common memory-card formats. You can connect an ...

  • Profile Mechanic review

    Profile Mechanic consists of two independent programs, sold separately. Profile Mechanic Monitor can calibrate and write ICC correction profiles for CRT and LCD monitors. It provides a small USB colorimeter sensor with interchangeable supports for both types of monitor. Profile Mechanic Scanner creates correction profiles for any flatbed or transparency scanner, as well as digital cameras.

  • EasyShare CX7430 review

    If simplicity is a virtue when it comes to digital cameras, the Kodak EasyShare CX7430 outclasses most of its competition. Kodak gave this camera just the few controls needed for basic snapshot photography, and added text-based help prompts so that even the most neophyte photographer can work through them after a little instruction.

  • Stylus Photo R300M review

    The Epson Photo R300M possesses many features that make printing and managing your photography – with or without a PC – more convenient. The £135 plus VAT printer has two 2.5-inch LCDs: a monochrome display on the control panel for viewing menus, and a colour LCD for previewing images before printing. Among the menu options are commands for printing multiple images (or multiple copies of the same image) on one page, correcting colour and brightness ...

  • FileMaker Pro 7 review

    FileMaker seems to be aiming straight at the content creation market with version 7 of this database solution. There is a new field type called a Container that can be used to store digital pictures, movies, music, and other digital media – up to 4GB per field. It’s not only for the creative side of the business though, as the Container field can handle Word documents, full Excel spreadsheets, PDF files, PowerPoint presentation files, OLE objects, and more.
